How long has it been since you talked with the Lord
And told him your heart's hidden secrets
How long since you prayed how long since you stayed
On your knees till the light shone through
How long has it been since your mind felt at ease
How long since your heart knew no burden
Can you call him your friend how long has it been since you knew that he cared for you

How long has it been since you knelt by your bed and prayed to the Lord up in heaven
How long since you knew that he’d answer you
And would keep you the long night through
How long has it been since you woke with the dawn and felt that the day’s worth the living
Can you call him your friend how long has it been since you knew that he cared for you

    Song reminding you and me about our relation with him. We must be sincere,the time is too short. Almost the sign is fulfilling. Let not your heart be trouble turn to god now.

    You have been going through the fire. God is testing your faith, it is at times very difficult, because our emotions get in the way of our faith. Then his grace that never left us ,shines into our heart's in the most simple way& we know the holy spirit is their holding us up through the entire process of refining us to increase our faith & trust in him (jesus) this is our growing place & it's very painful if it is spiritual warfare & all the firey darts are coming at you from all sides,yet the new dawn breaks & we are changed from glory to glory amen
